Not sure how Obama is only leading 50-46 if Indies support him 51-40. Does this mean that he rates much more strongly with Republicans than Democrats?

Please explain ... different methodologies, polls?


You're using a D + 8 sample for Florida?

Perhaps you mixed up Oregon for Florida.


I'm not a pollster but when you see a direct correlation between the bump for Obama in your polls to the doubling of Dem sampling from +4 to +8, even you should know that's not good accurate polling... Just an observation...


Mitt the Twit is toast no November.


The sample indicated for Florida is perfectly reasonable and completely in-line with registration in the state.

The poll's sample: Democrat 44 / Republican 36 / Independent 20.

Florida voter registration statistics: Democrat 41 / Republican 36 / Independent 21 / Minor party 3.

Seems perfectly reasonable and professional

Stewman - Party ID is not static. Perhaps more people are IDing as Democrats these days.

It's mindblowing that so many people approve of Romney's 47% comments. (44% say they are "appropriate") ... it's just sad that probably half of those people are among the 47% Romney was talking about. It just shows how ridiculously partisan our country has become. Nobody should think those comments are OK. You don't have to pretend that it's OK to call senior citizens, working class Americans, soldiers in combat zones, and disabled veterans lazy moochers just because you're Republican. Just admit it: Mitt Romney is a scumbag.


Seems an outlier, here's a disent. http://www.tampabay.com/news/politics/national/barack-obama-mitt-romney-essentially-tied-in-florida-new-timesheraldbay/1252518

Um, your idiotic poll assumes 8% more Democrats than Republicans will vote in 2012. That is completely ludicrous.

Translation? Romney is winning.

Bill Mitchell

Hey PPP,

We are onto your games.

Alan Snipes

This site has explained before that they don't weigh by party ID. How do you know that the party ID hasn't changed from the last time they polled?

Bill Mitchell: Assuming your side is winning when it's clear you are losing is ... an interesting way to go about things. But you are going to have a bad case of the sads on November 6

PPP POLLS BY YEAR: 2006-2017

We came to PPP after a public poll in the San Jose Mayoral race showed our opponent ahead by 8 points. They found our candidate (Sam Liccardo) ahead by 3 points and that allowed us to be able to push back with the press against the perception that our opponent was now a strong favorite in the race. Sam ended up winning by 2 points and is now the next Mayor of San Jose. PPP worked very fast and had a very accurate read on the electorate when we needed them
